    The Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance is the latest in a series of awards recognizing superior vocal performance by a female in the pop category, the first of which was presented in 1959. The award goes to the artist. The awards have had quite a convoluted history, particularly during the early Grammy years, having seen several name changes:

    • 1959-1960: Best Vocal Performance, Female
    • 1961: Best Vocal Performance Single Record or Track, Female and Best Vocal Performance Album, Female
    • 1962-1963: Best Solo Vocal Performance, Female
    • 1964-1968: Best Vocal Performance, Female
    • 1966: Best Contemporary (R&R) Vocal Performance - Female
    • 1967: Grammy Award for Best Contemporary (R&R) Solo Vocal Performance - Male or Female
      (the award went to Paul McCartney for Eleanor Rigby)
    • 1968: Best Contemporary Female Solo Vocal Performance
